Due to the nature of some repairs, cosmetic damage to the plastic covers on a computer or laptop case can occur in the form of scratches and scuffs. Whilst we make every effort to ensure no damage is caused to a computer, we are not liable for the repair or replacement of the damaged part if it does not affect the functionality or usability of the machine (i.e. it is purely cosmetic).
TechCare may quote for a repair based on findings of initial diagnostic. If after carrying out the repair, the initial problem in full or part of the problem still exists then we may need to re-quote for additional parts and services. At this point, you the customer will have the option to pay the additional fee or collect your laptop in the condition it was given to us in, so long as we see the computer or laptop safe for use by the customer. We will not be liable for any parts that may have to be removed or disconnected in order to make the machine safe, even if this renders the machine useless.
TechCare does not accept responsibility for any damage resulting from viruses or other malicious pieces of software that may have been transmitted during servicing or escaped detection.
